Daily in Your Presence - Feb. 19

Day 50

RULER

The Lord reigns, let the nations tremble;
he sits enthroned between the cherubim, let the earth shake.
Psalm 99:1

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, do you know how much it hurts Me when you put others ahead of Me? Just as your own parents want to know you respect their wishes, I need your full obedience. I understand your struggle, but I will not abandon you or steer you off course. Trust Me to rule your life.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
Nations war against nations, fighting for the right to rule. A hundred voices cry out within me, each vying for first place in my heart. But it is You, Lord, who reigns supreme. And it is You who deserves my full devotion. Ruler of my heart, I bow before You.

SIMPLE TRUTH

Trying to rule our own life is like trying to tame a wild animal.
